    For those that believe in a Supreme Being

    How do you envision your Supreme Being (Sounds akward but I'm trying not to put my spin into it)?

    Well I would imagine that God would look like man, since the bibal states that we are made in his image.

    The whole is the one. Everything is connected. OOps!! I guess that eliminates a figurehead..... unless the whole is metaphorically the 'One'..........I'll shutup now.....

    In my catholic grade school days I used to picture the big guy as a white male with long white hair and a long white beard.

    Wow!! God is a male?

    Yeah, In my culture here in Canada most images or icons of Jesus show him to be a white, occidental, with the hippie length straight hair (always blonde), physically fit, perfect posture, blue or green eyes, and a nicely trimmed beard.

    The truth of course is that the philosopher Jesus was born in the middle east. So I think it unlikely that he had any but an olive skinned complexion(certainly not white) dark hair, dark eyes, etc, as most people from that region of the world would be expected to mirror physical attributes common in that area. But selling a dark skinned man as a savior probably invited a myriad of image problems, so the spin doctors decided to make him white so he would sell in northern Europe, and later America. Heck, as children, even our school books reflected this occidental propaganda.....probably still do.... you'd think that religions would be in favour of truth..........but it probably doesn't sell well......

    At my church, the statues show Jesus as slightly darker, with a medium, trimmed beard and black almost wavy hair.

    but perhaps that is just Edmonton.

    I cant seem to envision what god looks like - to me, he is perfect, and no amount of human comprehension can envision that ...

    Sorry, I'm not very articulate at expressing my thoughts

    In Vonnegut's book Mother Night there's an arian neo-nazi guy who wrote a book called 'Jesus is not Jew'. He was also a dentist and proved in his book that indeed Jesus wasn't a Jew by comparing over 200 famous paintings of Jesus with Jewish Jawlines and none of them matched up .

    I like the image of God on the Y2K episode of Southpark when he appears at Jesus's year 2000 Rod Stewart come-back special.
    UNCLE JIMBO: That's God!?!?
    GOD: Yes my son, what did you expect me to look like?
    UNCLE JIMBO: Well not like That!!!

    hehe

    If you give Him any form know that He is not that, what ever come in your mind know that He is not that, He is every thing and everywhere, if you look very carefully at every thing, you will see that this universe doesnt' have end neither outsite, how could something have no outside if inside exist? if you want to find Him and know how He look like then search within yourself, do not look out, look inside
